Howard the Combine Kitty has a Home

Howard, the kitten whose front paws were amputated after an assumed encounter with farm machinery, has a home. The kitten was adopted by the family of Kyle and Bryce Billingslea, the two boys who originally found the kitten in a ditch and sought help for his injuries. A video from the Lansing State Journal shows Howard adjusting well to house cat life. Link -via Arbroath

So bittersweet. Poor kitty. I'm thinking it tried to chase a mouse that ran into the machinery? Not good. Hurts to imagine. Those boys did a wonderful thing. I love the name Howard.

I have rescued cats and had many pet cats and am a lifelong cat person. And I am going to go ahead and say it: At least the family wont have to worry about kitty scratching up their furniture.

Lol true pyrit. No frayed furniture corners :P
Very sweet video though. Good to see that the cat is adjusting and it has a very loving home now. Yay for those 2 boys for finding it and doing the right thing :)

I'm so glad this story has a happy ending. Howard's life will never be ideal, but it can at least be comfortable. It doesn't make up for what happened, but I'm reassured by the humanity displayed by everyone involved. Solace in little things.

Wonderful Story!

We just adopted a kitty who had to have a back leg amputated due to an accident. He gets around quite well and is a real snuggle bunny. I have family who adopted a dog that had a bad leg and only one eye. Bessie just keeps on going! I think animals with disabilities just don't know it's "supposed" to slow them down. They just keep going.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
